Santa Monica, Calif., December 1, 2008 – Cornerstone OnDemand Inc., a leader in on-demand, integrated learning and talent management software and services, today announced that despite the recent turmoil in the economy, the company’s momentum has accelerated in the past four months.  This includes the addition of hundreds of thousands of new users via the signing of top-tier clients, as well as the formation of strategic alliances with leading resellers and service organizations.  The increase in new account bookings and growth of third-party sales channels further expands Cornerstone’s global footprint and strengthens its experience in key vertical segments.

“The expansion of our global footprint and success of our strategic partnerships further validate Cornerstone’s leadership in the on-demand talent management software space,” said Adam Miller, President and CEO of Cornerstone OnDemand.  “In the past year, we’ve closed some of the largest deals in the SaaS category because of our ability to support wide-scale, worldwide implementations.  In 2009, we will continue to focus on the success of our clients, including investments in product innovation and in providing best-in-class client service and support.”


As part of its commitment to being a trusted strategic partner to its clients around the world, Cornerstone expanded its Consulting Services offerings, which includes growth of its internal team of experts and the addition of new strategic global consulting partners.  The enhancements further streamline the client service experience, reduce implementation times and help support clients’ overall business objectives.
